I made out like a bandit again!

Did I ever tell you guys how I love Tuesday Morning? There are two near me. One is on a busy road, and that one gets picked clean pretty quick. The other one is in a tiny strip center right in the middle of a residential neighborhood and gets very little traffic. I almost always do well when I shop at that one. Here's what I got:

Martha Stewart punches $2.99 a piece!!! The border punch was $3.99

Fiskars border punch $5.99 (sorry the photo is so dark- If I use a direct flash it bounces off the plastic)

Autumn Leaves stamp set "Gypsy Style" $3.99 They had about 7 or 8 different styles, but I was very strict with myself. I didn't think I could use the other ones, but it was still hard to pass up for that price!

Tim Holtz Grungeboard. These came as a two pack for $7.99 . UNBELIEVABLE! I was so happy I bought quite a few. If you don't know what it is, it's basically flexible chipboard. The sheets make awesome mini book bindings.

Just the alpha pack retails for$20 at Michaels!

Graphic 45 "Le' Romantique"

Hi my scrappy friends! Anyone else being slammed with seasonal allergies right now? I'm in Charlotte North Carolina, and it's terrible here! I went to Target this morning to get my meds. I picked up Benadryl extra strength, plus, plus, plus. I knew it was going to make me really tired, and I had a lot to do today, so I figured I'd stop at Starbucks on my way out. $4 later, I had my non-fat cafe mocha, no whip. So I spent my morning spaced out from the Benadryl, and jacked up on caffeine, lol! Sometimes you just can't win!I wanted to show you the mini that I worked on all weekend. I love Graphic 45! I decided that from now on I will show pictures of everything I make, instead of just showing the video. I will still post a link here to the YouTube videos in case you want to see them. I'm going to do a video for this one tomorrow. I don't have 12 hours
today to download it to YouTube.
Ok, don't laugh. I know I over did it with the feathers. I'm going to trim those babies back!

I made some acrylic tags.

I love the little envelope and letter on this page, it's my favorite part of the mini!

I used another piece of acrylic to create this page. It's hard to see, but the butterfly pops up from the page.

If you got all the way down here, I'm impressed. That was a lot to look at!

Trade Wind Scrapper's March Swap

I feel like I haven't posted in a long time! Our Family was in south Florida this past week for spring break. I'm back now and ready to blog! I want to share with you this beautiful mini that I received from Daphna, my TWS swap partner. She did an awesome job, I really love it!
